There are 50 impromptu public speaking topics here, covering a broad cross section of subject matter.
Many of them are deliberately provocative to stimulate a response. Others are open-ended or neutral to allow whatever occurs in your mind to fit the topic. Use them for table topics at your Toastmaster's Club, with your public speaking class or by yourself.

If you're using these impromptu speaking topics with a friend or in a classroom setting, use the same method but omit the recording as you can give your feedback verbally.

The ultimate goal is to be given a speech topic and to begin speaking on the subject coherently and easily almost immediately.
Literally, you get given the topic, the green light or timer is flicked on, you open your mouth and go!
